If you could be anyone else for a week, who would you be and what would you do? The Sultan of Brunei. I’m afraid I’d empty all his bank accounts and do as much good as possible in developing nations to eradicate hunger, provide good accommodation and deliver basic healthcare. Doing it in seven days would be a challenge though.
What would you have as your last meal? A huge seafood paella shared with my best friend and wife Ruth and our three girls.
What is the best corporate jolly you have ever been on/taken partners on? Jonathan Palmer Race Day In Bedford with Brother UK – a top day for a petrol-head like me.
Do you see the cloud as a threat or an opportunity? It’s a huge opportunity.
Have any of your predictions come true this year? The success of NBG of course.
What do you see as the channel’s biggest challenge in 2011? Migrating existing revenues to the cloud model. There will be big winners and losers on this.
What is the best part of your day? Getting up! The joy of being granted another day to live life to the max.
